Hurry Up And Fix The Water Pressure. Need Hot Water For a Shower. 😡
Turn your lights off to your city! So that people can have heat inside their homes!
Why not ask us that use these streets on a daily?

Meanwhile major businesses and large buildings Downtown are burning the lights, even when closed.
According to this YouTube expose' on Lieutenant Singleton of the HFD, I don't think he's gonna make it. You're past always catches up with you. Watch 4 minutes 5 seconds into this attached YouTube video:
I keep reporting the illegal dumping at this corner in my neighborhood, and nothing has been done for over a year! Freecroft @ Palmway. The shoulder gets used for everything! Over 20 tires, trash, and now a pile of bricks! What else can I do?
Is there any chance we're gonna get the basketball hoops up anytime soon?
Thank you so much City of Houston for the gift of backed up sewage in our bathrooms today. Your truck showed up today on the 2600 block of Peckham Street (77098) and proceeded to start pumping and giving us no notice. Same thing happened to our neighbors. We pay way to much in taxes to be treated this way!!! SHAME ON YOU CITY OF HOUSTON!!!! Whomever runs this department should be fired!!!
Please remove the Trump/Pence signs that are all over Memorial and other streets in Houston. It's a form of bullying by leaving those signs up and it's not fair to everyone to have to see those signs.
Thank you City of Houston for the big potholes that make us buy tires every other month!!
